We are concerned about the recent flu outbreak among the students at Yangon Grace Bible School. Fourteen students plus three of Philip’s biological children have been stricken. In addition, four of the students had to undergo an appendectomy. One is currently recovering in the hospital at this time. Please join us in prayer for a full recovery for students and family.
Philip writes about the financial difficulties that arise from this latest outbreak of illness and medical emergency. As the school is committed to paying the medical care of its students, funds are running low. Philip acknowledges fully that necessary provisions are supplied from the Lord and sends his thanks to all who help support his family and the students at the school. Through your donations, Word Within International continues to support Philip’s ministry, both the school and their outreach programs.
A guiding standard by which Philip lives and manages his ministry is found in Matthew 4:19-20, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.” Jesus called and Philip followed. Through the school and mission projects, he and his co-workers laid down their nets and followed Him, trusting that God would provide their needs as they went about being ‘fishers of men.’ In Philip’s words, “We are never sure about where we will be or how we will survive or how well we will be. We just only know that if we follow Him, He will be with us wherever He leads…”
Again, many thanks to the ones who are currently helping in his support. The needs are many and funding is lacking. If you feel led by God to become a part of the team, you can mail your check to P.O. Box 33178, Tulsa 74153.
